MSVU faculty, librarians, lab instructors hit the picket lines

Full-time faculty at Mount Saint Vincent University hit the picket lines yesterday. The MSVU Faculty Association (MSVUFA)–which represents 160 full-time faculty, librarians, and lab instructors–recently released a statement explaining that the union and university failed to reach a collective agreement this past weekend and that the union has gone on strike until a tentative agreement is reached. MSVUFA added that it is centrally concerned with issues of compensation, diversity, and inclusion. MSVU issued a release expressing that a key priority for the university will be to mitigate the strike’s impacts on students. “We’ll do all we can to support our students throughout this time and minimize the effect on students’ academic experience,” reads the MSVU release.
